  •  
    Desired toppings (see recipes below)
Directions
1.
Preheat oven to 425 degree F. Lightly grease a large baking sheet; set aside.

Unroll the pizza dough onto a lightly floured surface. Using a lightly floured rolling pin, roll dough into a 13-1/2x9-inch rectangle. Cut dough into six 4-1/2-inch squares. Place squares about 1 inch apart on the prepared baking sheet. Add a decorative edge to each pizza by using the tines of a fork or crimping the dough with your fingers.
3.
Prebake the dough squares in preheated oven for 4 to 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Top as suggested below or as desired. Bake for 5 to 6 minutes more or until toppings are heated through. Makes 6 pizzettas.
